Set outstanding; direction excellent; acting very good. The problem is the play itself. First, the Thirty Years' War is of little relevance today. Second, even with... continued

A travesty of Schiller's great work. I have read the play several times and even so, I could not follow the action of this so called "adaptation". Why the STC spent... continued
